Former Ghana left back, Hans Adu Sarpei says a friendly match between Ghana and Germany in Accra will be a good idea in the fight against racism.
Hans Adu Sarpei, who represented the Black Stars at two world cups, in 2006 and 2010 enjoyed an accomplished career in Germany with German giants, Wolfsburg.
Speaking in an interview with major television outlet, Phoenix TV, Sarpei made this suggestion.
“The DFB does too little for me. Hang up signs and the players then come in and say: We are against racism, that is not enough,” Sarpei said.
“Let’s have a look at the German national team. Sané, Boateng, Gnabry. Where do they all come from? Why don’t we make a game in Ghana, where Boateng’s roots come from. Easy to build bridges. Football has such an effect, such a force. Show people what it’s like in Ghana,” he added.
“This is a strong reaction from FSV Mainz. But I still wish they had written about it. These colored players, there is a German, an Austrian, a Luxembourger, a Dutchman,” he concluded.
Hans Adu Sarpei was a member of Ghana’s historic World Cup squad in 2010 and was a long time regular at the left back spot. He made 36 appearances for the black stars, scoring 1 goal.
